ELE || Cultural Literacy & Social Justice
This ELE challenges students to be engaged, responsible members of society who understand social privilege and respect the experiences of others. Examples include:
- Participating in a diversity-oriented scholars program such as McNair Scholars, Emerging Scholars, Multicultural Scholars Program, or the Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD) Program
- Double majoring or minoring in Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies; African & African-American Studies; Latino/Latina Studies; or Law and Society
- Participating in Colors of KU
- Becoming a cultural literacy trainer for an on-campus program such as Safe Zone or the Office of Multicultural Affairs
Reflection question: How has this experience enhanced your education? Please pay particular attention to the ways in which this experience forced you to evaluate your privileges and rethink the nature of your engagement in your community (locally, nationally, or globally).
